Aaaannnndddd she rounds the TURN......

Yep, I've made that turn and now the gusset decreases take the lead! I'm really thrilled how fast this sock is knitting up...much quicker than I remember my first sock last year! (Gee, I wonder why???? ;) )

For your viewing pleasure......

Current WIPs

Newest socks in progress. The pattern repeat is REALLY easy which is nice since I can memorize it.

EDITING: SORRY! I forgot about naming the yarn and pattern! It was late when I was re-creating this blog.

Now for the specifics: The yarn for the socks is Trekking XXL in #423. I'm using the Baby Cable Rib from Sensational Knitted Socks. I'll be using a heel flap since I don't know how to do a short row heel, but will be learning in November in a sock class at the LYS.

Yarn for the baby blanket is KnitPicks Shine Worsted in Terra Cotta. I found the pattern online free. I have some work to do because I've lost a couple stitches and have to figure out where they went. :(

Here are knitting pictures of projects I've completed over the past year. Since my other blog can't be accessed for some UNKNOWN reason, I'm starting this one primarily for knitting....but I may throw in something else every now and then...who knows? It's my blog.
